Easter Weekend Recap!

Wow! What an amazing weekend! The extra couple of days that got to spend with my boys was awesome! 

On Thursday we picked up this cute bunny at daycare! All the kiddos were hoping around as the Easter Bunny had visited during nap time! How fun! 

Friday was a low key day, just Sam and I. Ryan had worked that night and slept all morning/early afternoon. Normally Sam I would leave so the house would be nice and quiet but I was getting my windshield repaired so instead we hung around home getting food ready for Easter festivities. 

Saturday morning I was up early to make these gluten-free treats for my family! They were a hit and I will be making them again! Even for myself! These s'more cookies I made following this recipe

I was also in charge of homemade buns for both family meals and I decided to try a bread machine recipe! It made making buns SO easy

In the late morning I took Sam up to watch Ryan's hockey game. He loved watching his Dad play. I know that there will be many days spent at the hockey arena in our future. 

Sam went down for an early nap and when he woke up it was time for my family Easter get together!

Sam played hard and was exhausted when we got home. He crashed and then proceeded to sleep in until 8:30 on Easter morning! The bunny had paid us a visit! 

Sam's basket was fun to put together this year. His Easter outfit, chocolate fire truck, bath bubbles and markers, bubbles, chalk and a new book. 

And the Easter bunny was good to me too! New rubber boots, gardening gloves and this beautiful Easter lily! 

Was was REALLY into looking and finding (and eating) his eggs! 

I made some special pancakes for my boys for breakfast before we all got ready for church! 

I love to get Sam a special outfit for Easter! His sweater, dinosaur button up and pants were all from Joe Fresh. His shoes were from Carters and his tie I got last year at a Mexx Kids clearance sale for $1.50! 

We headed to church were there were SO many kids! They all got to do a Easter egg hunt! 

We got home for a quick lunch and early nap and then headed to Ryan's parents to have a wonderful meal there. Sam and Sophie are only about 5 months apart and they are fun to watch interact together! 

HOLIDAY MONDAY! It was a dreadful rainy and cold day! But we bundled up and headed to a new play place our Daycare raved about! Zigazoom is in the Aylmer mall and it is SO fun! Sam loved it and the price is right! $6.95 gets 1 child and 1 adult in with the additional adult being $3. Such a fun way to spend our morning off together! 

We also took Sam for his first taste of St.Hubert's. He thought it was awesome that his food was served in a car! 

Dad and Sammy snuggles after nap time! 

For supper, I made a pizza dough in the bread machine. Have I mentioned that I am loving this new appliance? 

Sam wanted to help and he is getting so good at listening and taking directions. He helped put all the pepperoni and cheese on our pizza.  

I am so sad that our amazing long weekend together is over but so glad at the memories we made! 

How was your Easter? 



  1. Sam is sooo cute!! I pulled out my bread machine this weekend too and made 3 loaves of bread. It get's addictive, it's like a competition with myself to see if I can make an awesome loaf of bread each time, the anticipation if it's going to turn out....but not good for the waist line. HAHA. I can't wait to try pizza dough!

  2. Sam is looking so grown up! Love his Easter outfit :)

  3. I love my bread machine for buns. I switch some of the flour for oat bran, so I can pretend they are healthy. Yummy, I get asked to make them for a lot of family dinners.
